Typical day for a Home Health nurse... - page 25

    Thanks for your feedback. I have already been interested in hospice care and I thought it would be in an inpatient setting. The idea of home hospice care is all new to me. I've only been a RN for a little over a year and part of me is unsure about being on my own so soon...but I really don't want to let go of an opportunity I have always wanted because of my fear.

    nice!
    I have a question: how do you move from hospital until the cases? You go with all you need in the car?

    Here's my vent- today I was sent to a motel next to a topless bar (parking lot for thw bar is shared with motel) saturated with drugs and prostitutes and when I complained they made it seem like that type of environment is normal and I was told all the other nurses are going and do not have an issues. Feeling blah today. Then I was asked to open a noncompliant patient that is on drugs and refuses to follow any medical advice.

    enjoyed your post !! But Never expect thanks for a job well done, they just give more work for you to do !
    That has been and continues to be my experience !!! Took me years to finally decide to slow down & say NO once in awhile.

    I'm thinking about transitioning into home health nursing. I'm an RN, however I'm concerned because I have severe allergies and asthma and I'm worried that going into home with so many potential triggers will further exacerbate my illness. Any thoughts?

    This is such a wonderful thread! You always wonder what a day in the life is for different jobs and this really helps! I am interviewing for 2 home health jobs next week and I wasn't sure how I felt about it until I read this post. I am thinking of leaving the hospital and looking into HH and CM, this really was a fantastic way to learn about the flow and what to expect. Thank you!!
